FC Bayern is apparently “all in” in the fight for David Alaba – and is issuing a sales ban for this summer. That would mean: If both sides cannot agree on a contract extension, the valuable defender can leave the club for free in 2021.
FC Bayern has been working under high pressure on a contract extension with defender David Alaba for weeks. An extension of the working document beyond the end of the contract in June 2021 is the declared goal of both parties, but financial ideas are still (too) far away. If you can’t reach an agreement, Alaba, one of the world’s most valuable defenders, with an estimated market value of € 65 million, will be available for a free transfer in 2021. A scenario against which the chairman of honor Uli Hoeneß recently warned: “We absolutely have to prevent this. “”
But that is exactly what the bosses of FC Bayern would agree to – and Alaba said, according to reports in the newspaper “Bild”, “not for sale” for the transfer period until October 5th. And this regardless of the interested party and the amount of its offer. The 27-year-old is simply indispensable for coach Hansi Flick. Alaba sits in the middle of the four-time winner’s defense.
The FC Bayern squad is already considered to be too thin for the high load of the tight schedule, and even a roughly equivalent replacement would not be found in the short time available. Alaba himself feels at home at FC Bayern: “This club is not just any club for me, it is at home, in the family and at home. I’ve been wearing the iconic red jersey for twelve years and wear it every day with dedication, pride and passion. does and continues to do so. “”
FC Bayern “fed up”
However, contract negotiations are still difficult. The “kicker” reports an offer from FC Bayern, according to which Alaba would receive a base salary of eleven million euros per year and up to six million additional bonuses over five years. Alaba consultant Pini Zahavi is said to vehemently demand 25 million euros per year for his customer. That would make the Austrian national player the best winner of the beloved Bayern team. At Bayern, the immobility on the Alaba side is causing frustration, they “are gradually getting tired,” says the “Kicker” report.
FC Bayern officials recently published alternative reports on the water level for the negotiations: “At Bayern there is a sporting and financial limit: Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer,” Salihamidzic told the kicker: “I don’t think David believes in it himself . he would be above these two colleagues. “”
A board colleague, Oliver Kahn, supported: You will not extend the Austrian at any price. This applies in particular to the Corona crisis, the financial impact of which is also clearly noticeable for the Bundesliga team. “You also have to see the situation: We no longer live in the pre-Corona football world. We live in a completely different world of football. He emphasized: “We have a responsibility to always consider the economic aspect.” “
Before that, Uli Hoeneß caused a stir: The honorary president had attacked Alaba and his agent Pini Zahavi in the Sport1 doubles. He described Zahavi as a “greedy piranha” and his father George was “heavily influenced” by the agent. George Alaba fought vigorously: “I did not expect FC Bayern to spread dirty lies about salaries and commissions in public,” said George Alaba from Sky allegations. “”
Alaba itself has had “some astonished and certainly hurt statements and reports in the last few weeks”. “I really hope that we can find a solution as soon as possible so that the club, the managers, my teammates and the fans know what they are doing,” Alaba told the newspaper “Bild”. FC Bayern has apparently created at least some facts.
